Geology 1115: Physical Geology Lab Syllabus TA: Abigail Bullard Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Office Hours: Thursday from 1:50pm to 2:50pm, or by appointment. Lab Objectives: 1. Apply material learned in lecture, and learn complimentary content. 2. Better understand the planet we live on. 3. Become more scientifically literate. Required Lab Materials: Lab manual, pencil (optional – ruler, colored pencils, hand lens, calculator); sturdy shoes and sunscreen for field lab. Lab Course Fee: A fee is automatically collected at the time of registration. This fee is used for fieldtrip transportation, lab materials, and a small part of lab instructor costs. Lab Policies: Be respectful of your TA and your fellow students! Arrive on time. Come prepared. Don’t be distracted, and don’t be a distraction. No late work is accepted (all labs are due at the end of the lab period, unless otherwise indicated). There are no make-up labs unless arrangements have been made in advance with the TA. No credit for work turned in without a name. Failure to inform the TA of an absence in advance of the lab time will result in the loss of a letter grade. Grading: Each lab is worth 20 points and the rock & mineral exam is worth 60 points, for a total of 300 points. There is no extra credit. Starting the second week and continuing until the exam there will be a quiz on specimen identification worth 5 of that week's points.
